TOPIC: ESA Regulations-SSP

ESA Regulations-SSP 8 years 3 months ago #13879

  • Loose Cannon
B) Steve, I took your advice and sent a complaint to the Customer Services Manager of my DWP a few weeks ago. I've had no reply yet. I know this won't do much for my cred, but I've been reading the DWP's ESA Regulations. Ch1 Part 5:32 says that anyone on SSP should be deemed to have limited capability for work. I was receiving SSP until it ran out, then was give ESA until I failed the WCA, and am now going to Tribunal. I was made to go for 'Work Focussed Interviews' although I told the DWP that I had retired on the grounds of ill health. The regs also state that WFIs can be deferred if deemed inappropriate. I can think of nothing less appropriate than me going into the Jobcentre and saying 'I'm not looking for work, and never will be again!' I think these discrepancies are probably local ones. I also heard a rumour, and it's probably only a rumour, that other people who have retired on the grounds of ill health, are also failing the WCA. It wouldn't surprise me. Incidentally, does anyone know where I could see a copy of the original National Insurance Act of 1946? I can't find it anywhere. Funny that.

My guess would be either it's been repealed by subsequent legislation, or it's so old it's no longer available online.

This link seems to suggest that HERE except for section 89.
